    Just what I need, another hobby! Already got motorcycles, air-cooled VW's, vintage bikes, triathlons and a few others. Probably gonna give up the motorcycles for motored bikes for a number of reasons.

    I hope to get at least one of my teenage boys involved in the fun, just need to find the right bike as even my youngest (15) is 6'2". I might use my old Schwinn Typhoon, even if it is a little on the small size for any of us, but am also looking for ideas on bigger cruiser style bikes for my first go at this. It seems like maybe Greenline and a couple other manufacturers make slightly larger framed bikes for not too much money. Any advice in that area would be greatly appreciated. Also trying to find a lean back seatpost for the old Schwinn to get a little more room on that bike.

    Where at in eastern Washington are you? I'm up here in north Idaho around the Bonners Ferry area which isn't too far in the country. I'm just getting into the whole arena of motor bicycling myself.
